It's Game 7 against Plymouth for the second consecutive year. This time, the winner goes on to the OHL western final against the London Knights.
Last year, the Whalers won 4-2 to pull off an upset in the first round. Goalie Scott Wedgewood beat Kitchener's Mike Morrison.
The Rangers forced a Game 7 with a 4-2 win last night at the Aud in front of a packed house.
Rookie Curtis Meighan scored the game winner, but was one of many who stepped up. Others who had a huge game included Ryan Murphy, Cody Sol, John Gibson and Ben Thomson.
Gritty winger Tyler Randell rejoins the Rangers for Game 7. He has been sitting out on a 10-game suspension for hitting a player in the head earlier in the post-season.
The team hits the ice this afternoon before making its way to Plymouth.
Not much to report from practice. It was an optional skate.
Injured centre Andrew Crescenzi continues to be day-to-day with an upper body injury. The rest of the team is healthy.
For those wondering, the game will be on Rogers TV.
